NFL sells Pro Bowl jerseys with a hefty $175 price tag

Jan 29, 2016 at 2:50 PM--


For some time now, fans have complained about the prices of Nike NFL merchandise since they took over as the official league outfitter from the already overpriced Reebok. Game jerseys, which are replica jerseys that feature screen printed names and numbers on them, have a recommended retail price of $99.99. Limited jerseys, which are of higher quality and feature stitched tackle twill name and numbers, have a recommended retail price of $149.99. Elite jerseys, which are similar to the ones worn by the players during games, have a recommended retail price of $294.99. At those prices, it's easy to see why cheaper knock-off jerseys are so popular.

If you were planning on picking up a NaVorro Bowman Pro Bowl jersey (No love for Joe Staley who does not have a jersey available) at these same prices, think again. Pro Bowl jerseys that feature screen printed names and numbers on them, the same style that runs $99.99 for team versions, will cost you a recommended retail price of $174.99. You read that correctly. That's $25 more than the higher quality Limited jerseys available.

You may love Bowman, but do you love him enough to pay those kinds of prices?

The annual AFC-NFC all-star game will take place on Sunday, January 31 at 4 PM Pacific. This will be Bowman's third Pro Bowl appearance (2012, 2013 and 2015 seasons).

Neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked Nick Saban about Mac Jones, potential 49ers draft pick, at pro day

File this under interesting pre-draft tidbits. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan were in attendance for Alabama's pro day last week. That made headlines because the duo opted to watch quarterback Mac Jones rather than attend Ohio State's pro day to watch Justin Fields. Paired with Chris Simms' speculation that San Francisco might have traded up to the No. 3 spot for Jones, that spurred others to seriously consider a Jones-to-49ers scenario. Alabama head coach Nick Saban recently joined the Dan Patrick Show and shared that neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked him anything about his former quarterback, who helped guide the Crimson Tide to a national championship. And it wasn't because they didn't have an opportunity to do

Justin Fields of Ohio State will hold his second pro day workout on Wednesday, April 14. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to be in attendance. Both missed the former Buckeye quarterback's first pro day to attend Mac Jones' workout in Tuscaloosa. Shanahan and Lynch will have an opportunity to see quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in person too. He will hold a second pro day on Monday, April 19 — 10 days before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft. North Dakota St. QB Trey Lance has now scheduled his second pro day for April 19, or 10 days before



Peter King: 49ers haven't decided who to draft at No. 3, Shanahan and Lynch to attend upcoming pro days

The San Francisco 49ers traded multiple first-round picks and a third-rounder next year to move up to the No. 3 spot in this month's draft. Soon after, quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama became the favorite to be selected by head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. Members of the national media has started to back off a bit from proclaiming that scenario to be a near-lock. While they still declare Jones the favorite, no one is ready to admit that they are 100 percent certain what the 49ers' brass will do come April 29. "I think they have an open mind right now," ESPN's Adam Schefter recently told NBC Sports Bay Area. "I think they go into this
